How Many of my People does it Take?

... to make a pot of Top Ramen? (Yes, we do eat Top Ramen ... it's actually a staple at our house. Yes, I know it has MSG in it. We don't care.) Five! I found them all huddled together in this corner of the kitchen making Top Ramen. They aren't often all in the same place ... especially without wrestling or fighting. It's nice that Top Ramen brings our children together. Sniff.

On another note: new snowflakes are starting to fall. Collin is safely at the top of the mountain. And just for the record, I have done three loads of laundry and two carpet cleaning sessions in the last 3 days that were a direct result of misplaced bodily fluids. Could the marching band now play for me? I think I deserve a parade.

Oh, Kristine, You definitely deserve a medal. So close to Christmas and with all the fun weather. You totally rock for being a wonderful mother.

Only three loads? Sorry, you get the parade when your children number in the double digits...Oh, and just so you know, Top Ramen has MSG in it...just thought you'd like to know.

Kristine said...

Renee, you make me laugh. I heartily disagree. There has GOT to be a parade for us ... the little moms with less than a dozen children. Otherwise, well, otherwise ... um ... I don't know! But I think I hear the band coming now.

Yes, I believe a parade is a grand idea! If not a parade, then at least a fireworks display. A BIG one... with music.

I have to say, Jack has been doing all the laundry lately. He is Superman.

Oh, I forgot... TopRamen is a staple at this house too. Maybe it's in the genes because I know my Dad eats it often but he likes chilies in his. ugh!
